When it comes to packing for a move, there’s no room in the house that presents as much of a challenge as the kitchen. Often left as the last room most people get to, the kitchen is home to hundreds of oddly shaped items, like utensils, pitchers, blenders, cups, and pans. Given the shape of these items, most people aren’t sure of the best method for packing them up for a safe and easy transport.
Step 1: Clean the appliance. This way, everything you unpack will already be clean and ready to use.
Step 2: Dissemble the appliance. Remove items that are not sealed into place, like the glass tray in the bottom of the microwave.
Step 3: Write down instructions. If there are instructions for reassembling any of your appliances make sure you write it down for easy reassembly in your new kitchen.
Step 4: Choose a box that is close in size to the appliance itself. Our Knoxville appliance movers do not recommend placing multiple appliances in the same box, as they could break or scratch.
Step 5: Padding. Use padding, towels, packing papers, or packing peanuts to create a protective layer for each item. If you do choose the box multiple appliances in one, we suggest using plenty of towels or other padding to stop these items from bumping or scratching each other.
Step 6: Secure your boxes. Given the weight of most kitchen appliances, make sure you secure your boxes with extra tape to avoid breaking.
